Early on, being persecuted by street vendors, I asked Ehab if Arabic had some equivalent of “Enough!” or “forgetaboutit,” and he said, “Enza!” I had to write it down to remember it, but the first time I used it on a vendor, he laughed out loud in delight. A good note to end on, maybe. You’ve seen a lot of posts; you may be thinking, Enza!

  1. I have enjoyed your Egypt side trail (e.g., the boat pictures, the poem, the inner reflections, verbalizing your processes). Thanks for sharing all of it!
